1971 Original RS1600 standard road car.

Was used successfully in the early 70’s for Motoring News road rally events in its original unmodifed road spec. This car spent much of its life tucked away in a garage as the owner passed away in 1978, the garage door was locked and not reopened until 2002, the mother of the owner held onto the car until she eventually sold her house and had to empty the garage in 2002, when the garage doors were cleared of brambles etc the doors were opened and to everyone's delight, the car had survived its deep sleep remarkably well, the garage had preserved the car far better than anyone could of imaged. The mother of the deceased man decided to let the car go to an RS enthusiast, the new owner spent the next 3 years lovingly restoring it using only genuine Ford parts, the body shell was in superb condition and did not require patching and welding like most restoration projects , there is a huge file with the car with photographic evidence to prove this . All the rare parts such as the air filter box, trim, dash and all other RS1600 items are the originals from this car. The long term restoration was featured in magazines (included) The car fired back into life for the first time on August 31st 2004 , (24 years after it was parked up in 1978) but more significant exactly 33 years to the day since the car was originally registered August 31st 1971 ! The car then sat in JD classics collection from 2006 until 2016.


There is a huge file documenting the events it did in the 70’s, all the results, photos and even the competitor plates/stickers from each event.

Rarely does an original RS1600 come on the market for sale and even less frequent in this condition with such few miles on the clock, a mere 45 years old with all matching numbers on vin plate, bodyshell and engine and with a fully documented history file. Simply stunning. Investment opportunity.
